Matar Paneer | Paneer Peas Curry

Paneer and green peas in a slightly sweet and spicy onion-tomato gravy. Serve hot with naan or any variety rice dish.

I love paneer and anything made with it! Matar Paneer is quite an easy and flavorful dish. I prepare this in different ways every time. Sometimes I grind everything together, and when I'm in the mood to chop I do without any grinding. The below way of cooking matar paneer has always turned out the best for me. Enjoy this sweet-spicy curry with some naan or chapathi.
